Frequently Asked Questions

Here is a list of the frequently asked question about our yurts and glamping at Strawberry Skys Yurts. The list is updated as common queries arise, however, please do not hesitate to get in touch if the answer to your question is not provided.

Do you accept dogs?

No, we’re sorry but due to the nature of our site and close proximity of livestock we can only accept Guide and Special Assistance dogs on site.

Is there somewhere to eat nearby?

Yes. Our nearest village Llanfair Caereinion has three pubs, a wine bar and a cafe/tea rooms all of which serve food. There is also a fish & chip shop. Other options are only a short distance away and we are happy to advise on locations for all tastes and budgets. Please see our “Where to Eat” page.

Can I walk to the nearest pub/village?

Yes, it should only take about 30-40 minutes to walk across the fields on public footpath. An alternative route along the lanes is just under three miles. Though it might take a bit longer if you stop to admire the view. There is a local licensed taxi service in Llanfair Caereinion and their number is provided in the yurt as well as in the kitchen if you don’t fancy the walk back.

Do you allow extra tents, or camping?

No. In order to maintain the tranquil nature of our site we limit the number of guests to those that can sleep in the yurts only.

Do you allow fireworks, or chinese lanterns?

No, as these are both potentially hazardous to the yurts, livestock and surrounding properties. The use of fireworks and chinese lanterns is prohibited at all times with no exceptions.

What do I need to bring with me?

The essentials you need to bring are bedding (sleeping bags/duvets), sheets & pillows, towels for the shower, at least one good torch and wellies. Please see our “What to bring” page for the full list of essentials, nice to haves and luxuries to make for a blissfull yurt holiday.

How far apart are the yurts?

As a rough guide the yurts are about 40m/50m apart and sight lines are broken up by trees and bushes. Our large Yurt at the top of the yurt field is just over 100m from the car park and toilets.

What do you charge for firewood?

All the wood for the wood burners inside the yurts and campfire pits outside, plus kindling is included in the price of your holiday. There are no hidden extras and you need pay for nothing more once you are on site.

Can I park my car next to the yurt?

No. All cars are parked on a hard area at the bottom of the yurt field.

How far is the car park from the yurts?

The parking area is at the bottom of the yurt field. It’s not far at all, no more than 50 metres to either of the smaller yurts and roughly 100 metres to the large yurt.

How far are the toilets from the yurts?

Our toilets are about 100m from the furthest yurt and are situated at the bottom of the yurt field.

Where is the nearest mainline train station?

Welshpool is the nearest mainline station which connects to Shrewsbury about half an hour away.

Can I cook in the yurts?

No. We do not allow cooking in the yurts.

Can I bring a gazebo?

Yes, of course. Though please use common sense when erecting gazebos, or other similar structures near open camp fires, or in windy conditions.

Can I bring my own camping stove?

Yes, but only for use outside the yurt.

How far is Mt Snowdon?

About 65 miles away which should take 1 hr 45 mins, though please be advised that this time will increase at peak times.

What is there to do when we get there?

Please see our “Playing” page for suggestions and activities.

Do you accept hen/stag parties?

No, due to the quiet nature of our site we do not allow hen/stag parties, or any other large single sex groups.
